Feeling stupid here.
Just starting with FMA 17 (188.8.131.52)
When using the format painter, which I've done many times before, in earlier versions,
I select the tool from the tool bar,
Select the object from which I want to copy the formating,
The curser changes to the formating brush,
I touch the object to receive the formating, but nothing happens to it.
I have not been able to get this to work trying slightly different sequences, etc.
Something else I notice - to select a button for formating (fill color), I have to click it twice, slowly, and can't select multiple buttons for the same purpose.
What am I missing?
